Hamas' other war & Stealing aid

Hamas is killing Palestinians. No news here; move on. Washington Times - MAY: Hamas' other war : Palestinian civilians continue to be murdered in cold blood - several dozen just last weekend. Many of the victims were gunned down inside hospitals and schools. If you've been following the latest Middle East conflict, this will not surprise you. What might: The fact that the assailants were Palestinians - Hamas members targeting those affiliated with the rival Fatah organization. Only scattered and buried mentions of these attacks have appeared in such newspapers as the New York Times and The Washington Post. There has been little or nothing on television. But Khaled Abu Toameh - the brave and distinguished correspondent for the Jerusalem Post (and, incidentally, an Arab) - has reported that 35 Fatah activists have been summarily executed, while more than twice that number have have legs or hands maimed. --------------- Hamas is stealing aid goods. Jerusalem Post : Hamas on Monday raided some 100 aid trucks that Israel had allowed into Gaza, stole their contents and sold them to the highest bidders. The IDF said that since terminal activity is coordinated with UNRWA [The UN's agency for relief] and the Red Cross, Israel could do nothing to prevent such raids, Israel Radio reported.
